Under a new $45.84 million development contract with L3Harris Technologies, the AN/PRC-160(V) wideband Type 1 HF manpack radio will be installed aboard USSOCOM’s MH-47 and MH-60 helicopters. The contract comprises $6.25 million in FY2021 acquisition resources for aviation connection power supply manufacture and system changes, as disclosed by the Department of Defense on December 7 but officially granted on December 8. In the lack of a satellite, L3Harris defines the AN/PRC-160(V) as “the industry’s only independent system for Beyond-Line-Of-Sight [BLoS] connectivity.” This wideband system is also the first and only HF manpack in the globe that complies with all NSA [National Security Agency] crypto-modernization criteria.
